The Clackamas Dogs Foundation provides support and assistance in order to advance dog welfare in Clackamas County.

Relying solely on donations, the Clackamas Dogs Foundation has become a vital resource for our community’s shelter. We are here to support Clackamas County dogs and their human families. We stand ready to help with resources for food, shelter, lost dogs and finding dogs new homes.

Some of our projects include:

Low-Income Spay & Neuter Program
This program allows low income Clackamas County residents to have their dog altered, when they otherwise wouldn’t have the resources. This significantly reduces the risk of unwanted puppies in our community.

Emergency Veterinary Care Fund
The Clackamas Dogs Foundation has partnered with Clackamas County Dog Services to provide an emergency vet care fund for dogs that come in needing extensive medical attention. The foundation has allocated $20,000 to this fund annually and has already helped multiple dogs with ailments such as broken bones to bladder stones.

Dog Training and Adoptability
Our shelter accepts all homeless and stray dogs in Clackamas County, meaning lots of dogs come in under-socialized and untrained. CDF is helping pay for a trainer on staff that will work with our dogs as well as teach volunteers how to increase adoptability.

Shelter Volunteers
Recruiting volunteers and volunteer training would not be possible without the help of CDF.  Shelter volunteers help with housekeeping, potty-walking, dog training and administrative support. Truly a priceless resource for our shelter!
